In an Australian first, the Right Food Group, based in NSW's Murwillumbah, has taken out the Best New Grocery Product award at the world's largest organic trade show, the Biofach World Organic Trade Fair.
The manufacturer took out the title for its Organic Noodle Kitchen range. which comprises six packets of traditional steam, curly soup and instant noodles in a range of flavours and forms including beetroot, charcoal, aoba, udon, spirulina and wholewheat.
The Right Food Group beat hundreds of others in the cooking and baking category, and general manager, Neil Sallaway, said "This was our first time at the prestigious BioFach Fair in Germany. We entered the competition for experience only so we are still astonished that it beat the rest of the world in the new product competition."
Manager of Australian Organic, Holly Vyner, added, "This is the first time an Australian company has won the award. Many of the entries in the competition were from large international corporations so it's an achievement for a regional NSW-based company to take out the award."
BioFach has over 40,000 visitors across the globe and this year it featured over 600 new products from more than 2,300 exhibitors.
